James is a life long Nintendo fanboy! He can't help himself and buys each and every iteration of every Nintendo console that is released. When he isn't browsing the eShop for the latest and greatest indie title he can be found working at Microsoft on mobile developer tools during the day and at night he is most likely cycling around Seattle or guzzling gallons of coffee at a local coffee shop.
